Please join us this Saturday as Dr. Justin Sytsma, philosophy lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington, provides an introduction to contemporary theories of time. The particular focus of Sytsma’s discussion will be the American philosopher William James’ notion of ‘the specious present’, the namesake of the Adam Art Gallery's exhibition concluding this Sunday 20 September.

Before coming to Wellington, Sytsma was an assistant professor at East Tennessee State University, after receiving his PhD in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2010. Sytsma has contributed to numerous philosophy journals and books including the recent publication Advances in Experimental Philosophy of Mind, 2014.
